Tables used in manuscripts should be designed properly. They should be typed single-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self-explanatory. Details of the methods used in the experiments should be described in the legend instead of in the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graph form or repeated in the text. MS Excel files should not be embedded as objects. If the submission is in PDF format, the author is requested to retain a copy in .doc format also to aid in completion of process successfully.

Arabic numerals must be used to label the figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Each legend must contain title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

If equations cannot be encoded in MathML, submit them in TIFF or EPS format as discrete files. Each file should contain data for only one equation. 

Additional Information
Discrete items of the Supplementary Information should be submitted in a new file and must be explained properly.

Electronic prints (PDF) will be sent as an e-mail attachment to the corresponding author. They are considered to be the final version of the manuscript.
